SYNOPSIS

'Constantly flashing from melodrama to comedy, The Lady Vanishes thrills the viewer and teases his intelligence to outguess the master of intrigue, Alfred Hitchcock. Awaking from a nap, a young woman discovers that the lady sitting in her train compartment has vanished. Her suspicions unconfirmed by everyone else, the macabre suggestion of a huge conspiracy slips into her mind, and the rest is madness and mayhem in inimitable Hitchcock style.' BAMPFA
